VITAC strongly believes in making accessible content standard, and we stand by our commitment to provide captions and accessible solutions for our consumers, the tens of millions of Americans who rely on captioning every day.
We have worked with advocacy groups and caption viewers in the community for more than three decades, and we’re proud of — and benefit greatly from — our strong advocate relationships, including those with:
TDI, an active national advocacy organization focusing its energies and resources to address equal access issues in telecommunications and media for people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, late-deafened, and deaf-blind.
Hands and Voices, a non-profit, parent-driven organization dedicated to supporting families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
We also are proud of our long-standing partnerships and active involvement with:
The Center for Hearing and Deaf Services in Pittsburgh, with our Chief Captioning Officer Chuck Karlovits serving on their board and supporting them each year. We were proud to be the recipient of the center’s Richard J. Follett Memorial Award, which recognizes an individual or organization that exhibits compassion, dedication, volunteerism, and a determined commitment toward enhancing the quality of life for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing.
We cherish all of our partnerships, and always are looking for ways to enhance existing relationships and strike up new ones.
